You will also see the following shops set up here: amiable, ASO! & Soothe, CerberusXing, Cheeky Pea, Contraption, Free Bird, Moon Amore, NYU, pr!tty & what next.

I’m sure you remember the Wayward Carnival back in July? What a great event and an awesome venue for photos! Wayward Halloween is the next big event planned for October, but they will also be adding Markets with rotating designers in the months between the major events. It is an exciting shopping concept, so now is a great time to head over to the sim and check it out!

For more information on Wayward Events, here’s a list of ways you can keep up with what is going on.

Y Is For Yellow

1 Y is for Yellow A

I can’t believe the Inventory Alphabet Challenge is almost over. This has been a fun challenge, some letters tougher than others. I knew from day A, though, that Y would be for yellow. It is a happy colour full of warmth and sunshine. And I knew from day A that I would use this flower-filled hill at It all starts with a smile. The rest was just details – I have a LOT of yellow stuff in my inventory.

I have already taken the photo for Z…I just have to process it and write the post. I have a lot of other pictures I took during the course of this challenge that I just haven’t had time to blog; I may slow down on shooting more pictures until those have seen the light of day. Or maybe I’ll just save them for a rainy day.

Sometimes I feel the pressure to blog only new things. But is an outfit that I put together from pieces that were new a couple of weeks ago really old? Unless it is a limited edition item, the dress or shoes or pose is still available for sale in the creator’s store and a later post is a reminder of this. I admit I do a lot of my shopping at sales events, rather than going to individual stores. I also blog for a few events, and while I have a responsibility to show items while the event is running I try to use the things I have been given later on, just so my readers are aware of something pretty they may have missed the first time around or I wasn’t able to show during the event. I am grateful to the designers who provide review copies to event bloggers; we aren’t their hand-picked bloggers and I do appreciate the trust they place in those of us selected by event coordinators. I have gotten past the point where I feel pressured to blog every single item that I receive; not everything is my style and I refuse to blog something that I can’t make look as good as I possibly can.

There is a point to my rambling. This challenge has reminded me of a lot of lovely things that have been languishing in my inventory for a while, and even a few things I had forgotten about or hadn’t even opened. Other than the hair I am wearing in this photo, everything is an older item. Yes, probably only a few months old, at most, but in the world of Second Life blogging, that is practically ancient history. Going back through my belongings during this past three-and-a-half weeks has given me an opportunity to remember that “new-to-me” can be just as exciting as “new-to-everyone.”

Flat Ebbe Linden Meme: A Walk In The Park

1 Flat Ebbe

By far, one of my favourite memes I have completed was the Flat Rodvik Meme. I laughed so hard while I was doing the photos for it, largely because Rod just looked so…ok, I’ll say it – GOOFY! Ebbe, on the other hand, is handsome and stylish. I have no doubt when the new stock avatar he is sporting is released it will be a popular one. But because he looked so much better, I felt guilty about doing to him what I did to poor Rod. No wonder he resigned; I nearly drowned the poor man!

Now that Linden Labs has a new CEO, of course Miss Berry had to do a new “Flat CEO” meme. I have no doubt she has been stalking him simply so she could do another meme 😉 It is a little different this time around, so here is a rundown of the instructions:

Meme instructions: Pick up a copy of Flat Ebbe Linden from my marketplace store for free and take him to one of your favorite places on the grid. Also, share at least three things that you’d like to tell Ebbe. Please remember to leave a link to your post in the comments (of this post) and share your Flat Ebbe picture in the Blog memes flickr group.

I decided to take Flat Ebbe to my favourite place in Second Life: Calas Galadhon Park. But I had a bit of an agenda in addition to just showing him the sights. And that is one of the three things I want to share with Ebbe.
